Democrat Leaders Plan To Get Tough With Iran and North Korea

Hat tip Wall Street Journal Opinion Journal Best of the Web Today August 25, 2005


Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, criticize the Bush administration for being 'passive' with respect to Iran's and North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons: "The administration's policy has been one of 'hands off' and 'it's someone else's problem,' " they complain.

We propose a program of "carrots" combined with an old-fashioned, American "big stick." That means pursuing diplomacy and trying to convince these nations to act in their own best interests. But it also means backing that up with a real commitment to use whatever form of pressure is most likely to produce results.

A real commitment to . . . whatever! Brilliant, huh?
